“I like helping the people who have diabetes live better and healthier lives. I like giving patients hope and power and helping them feel better. People with diabetes get a lot of blame and shame heaped on them, and I want to help them get out from under that, to let go of those bad feelings but also to help them live long and healthy and happy lives.”
